Search Query "AI Image Generator" over 1 year based on Google Trends
AI Image Generators have been amongst the latest Artificial Intelligence crazes that have been popping off as of recent.
First we had the GPT series of AI, which allowed you to generate different text formats by simply plugging in a brief sentence of what you want.
“A blog article about why it’s important to shave your armpits”...
This would then produce a blog article related to your request.
It’s always been far from perfect, but the technology is slowly getting there.
I’ve mentioned on numerous occasions that these tools are excellent for brainstorming and overcoming the so-called writer's block, but not for a plug & play end product.
Things have moved even further.
You can now input text and have an image be created based upon the query.
Here’s an example of art I’ve personally created using DALLE-2.
“A warrior cat in a flame background”
“A dark wizard in a synthwave background”
Your only limits are your imagination and how well you can communicate your idea to the AI.
There’s still a lot of learning to do with these tools, so Step 1 would definitely consist of becoming familiar with the existing tools on the market itself.
Some tools that I personally invite you to check out are the following:
https://openai.com/dall-e-2/ - One of the best AI image generation tools.
https://www.craiyon.com/ - Another AI image generation tool.
https://pollinations.ai/ - Another one.
The best one out of the 3 mentioned above is hands down Dall-E 2 as it allows you to edit the generated art further & even request variations.
Once you’ve gotten accustomed with the tools & their capabilities, I think one super low hanging fruit is creating a logo design generator using Dall-E 2’s API.
The flow is simple.
The user hops onto a website.
Enters a query for a quick logo.
Has several images presented to them as a quick form of inspiration.
Search Query for Dog Probiotics over a 5 Year Period across Google.
Dog Probiotics are beneficial gut dwelling microbes (bacteria) that are supposed to make your dog healthier.
Humans take probiotics and, overall, we’re slowly seeing an increase in cross applications between human health stuff crossing over into pet care.
An example of the following statement is the following:
Humans take DNA tests to understand their lineage & origin better.
Humans can now order portable DNA tests straight to their home from providers like 23andMe and have a full scientific breakdown of their lineage.
Humans can now also order DNA tests for their pets to understand their lineage & genetic breakdown.
Sellers are currently offering 8oz of Dog Probiotics for approximately $30 and are advertising it as something that can support your dog's overall health.
Here's an exemplified ad of a seller advertising Dog Probiotics via Facebook Ads
Alibaba offering wholesale Pet Probiotics for $15 per unit.
As with all e-commerce opportunities, it all comes down to:
Sourcing seems relatively easy considering that Alibaba Wholesalers are selling Pet Probiotic units for as little as $15 per unit, with further discounts applied to bigger orders.
These are 2 of the 5 trends we've covered within this report.
